Coming Soon: The 3rd Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon!

3 ingrid bergman 6

I just came back from a wonderful one month trip to Spain (where, in Seville, I saw two places where Lawrence of Arabia was filmed)! And I must admit I already missed it and I’m bored with Montreal’s undesirable weather. But, if there’s something I missed during my trip, it’s watching classics and blogging, that’s for sure. However, I must admit, I had the chance to see Trouble in Paradise at the Cine Doré in Madrid!

But now I’m back anyway! Admit, you missed me? 😉 And back in strength as I’m here to announce the coming of my 3rd Wonderful Ingrid Bergman  Blogathon, which will celebrate this most talented and beautiful actress at the occasion of her 102th birthday, but also her 35th death anniversary.

As this is the 3rd edition of this blogathon, I’m sure many of you are familiar with it. If not, you are of course most welcome to join us in the festivities. The more the merrier!

There are some simple rules to follow for this blogathon and here they are:

1- Choose a subject. You can write about anything related to Ingrid Bergman. My only request is the usual one: no duplicates (vive la variété!) You are welcome to write more than one entry, but as I don’t allow duplicates, please limit yourself to two.

2- You can submit your subject in the comments section of this post or via Twitter (@Ginnie_SP), email (virginie.pronovost@gmail.com), or via The Wonderful World of Cinema facebook page. Please provide your subject, the name of your blog and your blog URL.

3- Can I participate even if I don’t have a blog? Yes! You are most welcome to. Here is how we’ll proceed: send me your text via email and I will add it to my blog and credit you as the writer.

4- Once your subject has been accepted and confirm, grab one of these banners to put on your blog in order to help me promote the blogathon. As you can see, I used only pictures of Ingrid’s profile. Ouuuu concept!

Just like its first edition, my 2nd Golden Boy Blogathon was a success and I’m forever thankful to all the great bloggers who participated with articles of top quality! I host a few blogathons, but this one might be my favourite. 😉 Anyway, it’s great to see that Bill is not forgotten today, that he is still loved, admire and, despite his personal problems, respected.

He certainly was one of a kind and, as Emily at The Flapper Dame said, I’m sure he would have been the most handsome 99 years old man!

You might like to know that your articles have all individually been shared, not only on Twitter, but also in a great William Holden Tribute group on Facebook where fans truly appreciated what they read! If you are on Facebook as well, come say hello. We’re nice! 😉

If you still didn’t have the time to publish your article, no worries! I will gladly add it to the roster and promote it on Twitter/Facebook, but well, don’t wait next month either lol because I’ll be in Spain!!

To read all the entries, please click here.

And, once again, a big thanks from me and Bill!

A big thanks to all the participants. I’m sure William Holden would have been honoured by this collective tribute!

Happy heavenly birthday dear Golden Boy! ❤

And the Winner is… The Philadelphia Story!!

The Wonderful World of Cinema’s Cast (and Crew) Photos Competition is already over, and we have a winner!! Among 50 cast photos, you’ve elected this pic of The Philadelphia Story‘s casting as your favourite one!

I must say you have great tastes, because it is indeed a wonderful pic (and the movie is awesome as well)!!

I’ve told you that I might do something special with the winning pic. Well, I don’t think I will review the movie, because I’ve already done that twice, but I will start by using it as a new banner image! Modern Times has been there for quite some times now, so I think it’s definitely time for a change. And this pic will suit my blog perfectly!

Doing this type of photo contest was something I enjoyed very much ( I hope you did too!) and I’ll try to start another one soon!

Thanks again for voting and congratulation to The Philadelphia Story!
